How teeth become stained
Before exploring whitening options, it’s important to know how teeth become stained. This will help you avoid some of these causes after you receive your treatment to maintain your results longer. Teeth may become stained for the following reasons:
- Dark colored foods and beverages such as coffee, soda, tea, and red wine
- Acidic fruits
- Old dental restorations
- Certain medications including antidepressants, blood pressure medication, and some antibiotics
- Age or genetics
- Smoking or tobacco use
- Improper oral hygiene
- Excessive fluoride
Teeth whitening options: In-office and at-home
For in-office whitening, patients will come into the office and have a highly concentrated whitening gel applied directly to the teeth. We take caution to avoid contact with the gums. Patients will leave the office with dramatically whiter teeth.
With at-home whitening solutions, we provide patients with customized trays that are made from impressions of their teeth. Patients will be instructed on how to apply the gel into the trays and how long they should be worn each day. Results with this method are more gradual, increasing over the course of a couple of weeks.
